"A tremendous resource for those wanting to study and teach the Bible with an understanding of how the gospel is woven throughout Scripture." --Bryan Chapell, Pastor, Grace Presbyterian Church
The Knowing the Bible series is a resource designed to help Bible readers better understand and apply God's Word.
These 12-week studies lead participants through books of the Bible and are made up of four basic components: (1) reflection questions help readers engage the text at a deeper level; (2) "Gospel Glimpses" highlight the gospel of grace throughout the book; (3) "Whole-Bible Connections" show how any given passage connects to the Bible's overarching story of redemption, culminating in Christ; and (4) "Theological Soundings" identify how historic orthodox doctrines are taught or reinforced throughout Scripture.
With contributions from an array of influential pastors and church leaders, these gospel-centered studies will help Christians see and cherish the message of God's grace on every page of the Bible.
The book of 1 Corinthians contains Paul's exhortations to the church in Corinth, which was struggling with a lack of unity brought about by arrogance and divisiveness.
In this accessible study, pastor and author Jay Thomas helps readers understand the only remedy for such disunity: the pride-defeating truth of the gospel. At the heart of 1 Corinthians is the reality that the good news of Jesus Christ miraculously saves, changes, and unites God's people.
